Matthew Pearl: The Last Bookaneer
Left Bank Books, Tuesday, May 12 at 7pm
Left Bank Books

This historical novel by the bestselling author of The Dante Club takes us to the late 1800s, a shadowy era in publishing when copyright laws were so lax that books could be published without the author's consent. Literary pirates called bookaneers haunted harbors, hangouts, and printers' shops in hopes of stealing a manuscript that would net them a fortune. With an international treaty looming to end this practice, two survivors compete for one last catch-a novel by Robert Louis Stevenson.
